Apple holding Open House to hire for iPhone team

iPhone Open House ad A half-page newspaper ad published Sunday announces that Apple is “hiring qualified people to join the iPhone team” in Elk Grove, Calif., at a May 16 Open House.

The black-and-white ad was published in The Record, based out of Stockton—about 36 miles south of Elk Grove. (It’s probably safe to assume it appeared in other papers near Elk Grove.)

The ad’s text reads as follows:

The revolution continues.

Computers. Music. Now the iPhone. Apple continues to change the face of personal technology and this is your chance to be part of the revolution.

We are hiring qualified people to join the iPhone team in Elk Grove. If you’re looking to inspire customers with technology that empowers their lives and get your foot in the door at Apple, this is one opportunity you don’t want to miss.

Join us for an Open House on May 16th on Apple’s campus in Elk Grove. You’ll have the opportunity to learn more about Apple and interview with hiring managers.

This event is invite only, so call 1.866.238.6785 to reserve your spot today.

We are committed to diversity. Apple is an Equal Opportunity Employer.

Maybe those hired will relieve those engineers Apple borrowed from the Leopard development.

Now maybe someone can explain how an Open House is “invite only.”
